School-located Vaccine Clinics for Ages 5 - 11
Fairfax Health District and Fairfax County Public Schools are hosting 19 COVID-19 vaccine clinics at designated schools for students ages 5-11 years. Attendees are not required to be a student at that school. Vaccines will not be available for those 12 years and older. No appointment is necessary, vaccinations are free, and children must be accompanied by a parent or another responsible adult.
Report safety issues online or by text message using the Safety Tipline. You may choose to identify yourself or remain anonymous.
Anticipated Bus Delays
Due to the bus driver shortage, we will be increasing “double back” bus runs, meaning a bus is required to run two scheduled routes back to back that would normally have been covered by two separate buses. These “double backs” may impact delivery time to schools or bus stops and may have a domino effect, affecting after-school drop-off times.
